Cannot power on the PBP
#1
Hi,

I just received my new Pinebook Pro today.
But I can not turn it on Sad

When I press the Power-Button most times nothings happens, sometimes the power-LED turns on for a quarter second and then it's off again.
I've tried with and without power-supply, read in the wiki about the emmc-switch and the SD-Card ribbon.
Tried both with no luck.

I tried also without battery and the power-brick cable connected, but also nothing.

Any suggestions?

Perhaps if the processor was a mc68060...

With a 68060 it would be no problem *g

But I also got the RockChip to boot.
The eMMC seems to be empty, I deselected it with the switch and used a SD-Card to boot.
And I learned that you have to push the power-button longer to turn it on.

There should be something like a FAQ for beginner.

If you booted from sdcard, try and write the default image to the emmc with dd. Just to check the emmc is good.
Come have a chat in the Pine A64 IRC channel >>

Checked the emmc with gparted, it was complete empty.
Just wrote the Image to the emmc.
Now it's booting from it Smile
